Hi and welcome.
Today I am so happy to share that I am the Special Agent for August at Debbi's awesome 'new' challenge site Color Stories Inspiration. How cool is that!!
I received this Case File,which is number 31, to work with. The colours have a lovely Summery feel to them, and they certainly helped brighten my day here in the rainy southern parts of Sweden. We can definitely use some gorgeous Summer brightness at this time!!
For evidence I used liquid mediums, both paints , gesso and mists this time. I also used repetition: I added liquid pearl to my doilies and to the bird cage and I used doilies, both die cut wit my trusted Cheery Lynn dies and crochet ones. The turquoise and the white doily are gifts from the inimitable Leeann Pearce.You can see her fabulous work at Thepaintbrushgoesspotty . I just adore her work!! She has a shop on Etsy where she sells doilies and other super cute embellies.
Oh yes,-and I also used parallel lines.At the bottom of my page you can see I made lines with my sewing machine.
On the back of the page I have jotted down my testimony. I have documented this fun vacation in the South of France. The photos were taken two years ago when my lovely sister came down from Norway to spend some time with us. I used the words bright and vacations in my journalling.
The papers I have used here are by the French manufacturer "Toga" (gingham) and the rest is "Pink Paislee", "Spring Jubilee". The flowers are from the new collections by Prima and some from my stash.
I love these textile chipboards from Prima Marketing.
A few more close ups: As always I used a lot of distressing and layering.
I just love how the colours came together in this case file. I am above all a 'colour junkie' ,...lol!
I hope you will pay a visit to CSI Color Stories to see all the inspiration that Debbi and her team provide week after week. So much eye candy too!
I am keeping this 'short and sweet' as I am on vacations with my family in Norway.
I am looking forward to sharing the next CSI case file with you next week!!
Thanks for dropping by!
